Misinterpretation of IT Power Trends
Part 2 - Avoiding the Danger


By Parallel's
Nate Clyde
Director of Mechanical & Electrical Infrastructure Delivery

During Part 1, I discussed the misinterpretation of IT Power Trends and how it leads IT and DC Managers into forced "over-procurement." The misinterpretation of these trends can result in poor decisions on procurement, misguided business planning and can potentially cost companies millions in additional and unnecessary cap-ex and op-ex spends.

So what can we do to prevent the unnecessary "procurement hedging"?

Since many companies have found the value of bringing "IT" to the facilities table, what we have recognized is the servers/storage/network (while it can vary greatly in memory, CPU, and power requirement) being installed in the data center is only one part of the equation.

Data Center Thought Leadership Forum

Coming in February--watch for details!

Data Center Experts will discuss how power trends for servers, storage, network IT infrastructure and the impact this has had on Data Center management, including:
  • Strategies for handling I/T growth in your data center
  • How and why to properly plan for "right sized" procurement of IT
  • equipment and infrastructure
  • How to plan for Build, Co-lo or Cloud strategy, based upon the estimated power trends
  • Who are the right people to have at the table to understand the needs for the data center
